She really, really knows Austin and area, including its history. She goes way out of her way to make sure clients are informed and satisfied.

Terri L.

Stephanie was outstanding in helping us find our home.

She listened to our needs and was an excellent advocate. She followed up not only with us but the other realtor very promptly and regularly. She was accommodating with times to view properties. She represented us both professionally and with our best interests in mind. We highly recommend Allure and especially Stephanie. We couldn't be happier with the home we found.

Killian

Working with Angelle was a truly rewarding experience overall.

She exudes professionalism, timeliness, excellent communication and offered us the autonomy to navigate through the process while offering us her expertise when needed. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who is a true professional, who knows the market and hasn't forgotten the importance of relationship building!

Mary Beth Korducki

My husband and I worked with Angelle Hall.

I can honestly say we would not be living in the wonderful home and neighborhood we are in right now if it weren't for Angelle. She helped us navigate and understand Austin's neighborhoods and real estate market, which was moving very quickly. Angelle was always available to answer questions and do virtual walkthroughs. Her dedication to helping us find a home was like nothing we have ever experienced!

Amanda Pazzo

We selected Rachel to represent us in selling our home.

She was not referred to us, neither did we know her in advance. There is so much good to say about this person, we'd rather sit down over a cup of java and describe our adventure with her, but will have to put it in type and hopefully you will trust our review. Rachel became our realtor friend almost instantly. She is s simple gal who makes every encounter relaxing and fun. Her knowledge of the realty industry is second to none, there was not a single question we had that did not get her full attention and her response was always honest and clearly articulated. When it came to her batting on our behalf as we received initial offers, Rachel clearly laid out our options and potential outcomes and also provided her recommendations, all of which we followed and they worked out to our benefit.

We recently listed our house for sale in Austin,Texas with Angelle Hall.

We were impressed from the start with her approach to pricing, her wisdom from years of experience, and her aesthetic sense that helped guide us through staging the house in the best way we could. She was patient with us through the time it took to do cosmetic improvements; was available for consultation; and helpful at guiding us through the paperwork. Her strategy worked and we were able to sell the place very quickly. Angelle was a pleasure to work with. She has a good intuitive sense about us, about the house and about potential buyers. It was a positive experience at every point.

Sylvia & Larry Crook

Truly a great, caring, and experienced Realtor and Person, who looked after me and my professional experience when it comes to real estate.

Met her through her brokerage and is nice enough that the partnership/relationship has not ended - I can truly rely on her for anything and everything.

David Garza

Monica Poss is a superstar real estate agent.

This is our third transaction using her services and she has never ceased to amaze us. She was there for all our questions and concerns and we had many. She kept us informed as to what to expect and was always able to give us options when needed. I cannot say enough good things about her. Thank you Monica!

Martha Benevelli

Angelle Hall helped us prepare and sell our Austin home.

Months in advance of the sale, we invited her over for a consultation. She gave helpful suggestions on what to paint, the importance of cleaning inside and out and when the time came, she gave us excellent recommendations for service providers. Our house went on the market at noon on a Friday. She held an open house that Sunday afternoon and Monday morning we signed a contract. She walked us through the steps and helped us understand all the options. Her knowledge and relationships in the community made each transaction easy. Without hesitation, we recommend her for your real estate needs in Austin, Texas.

Teresa White

First off, I work at Texas National Title and I have been in this business for over 20 years.

I met Angelle Hall over 10 years ago and I have encountered many other agents along the way. When it was time to buy our house, there was no question on who I would pick and that is Angelle Hall. She is thorough, professional and is true blue. When you give her a budget, she will help you stick to that and truly will help you find the home of your dreams! I highly recommend her as an agent, she will always be in your corner and that's why I love her!

Stephanie Keeton

Maria Ivicic just made the process easy.

She was well informed about the comps in our neighborhood which eased the transition from the sale of our old house to the purchase of our new home! She was the calming voice in my corner whenever I allowed emotions to get involved in one of the biggest, personal business decisions that I've had to make.

Cedrick B.

We recently worked with Angelle Hall who represented us in the sale of two houses.

Angelle was very knowledgeable and professional, while also being super friendly and made us feel welcome with her Texas charm! She proved to be an awesome representative, one I would want on my team anytime I am involved a real estate transaction. She is modest about her skills, and when the time came she was a "master negotiator" and represented our best interests while achieving the results we desired. Angelle went above and beyond in the assessment of our home prior to the sale, and didn't stop there - she worked each and every milestone of the transaction and left no 'i' undotted and no 't' uncrossed. She ensured we were in compliance during each step, even if it was a little extra work for her. She also helped to manage the other parties involved in the transaction and her network of industry professionals proved to be a great value from the initial home repairs through to the closing of the home. The experience was great and I felt like I could sleep better at night because I knew that Angelle had everything taken care of. I highly recommend her!

Mindy L

As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what to expect on every level.

Which neighborhood? Move-in ready or fixer-upper? What would provide the best value? How much to spend? How do mortgages work? Isaiah not only gave us a crash course over the course of a few weeks, but helped us manage expectations and kept us organized so we could find a home by the time our first child was born. We ended up closing our home three weeks before my daughter was born. We moved into a home that worked for our family--close to UT, all one story, good bones that would allow for a strong foundation for renovations, huge yard, lots of square footage, and, not to mention great neighbors. During the process, Isaiah fought for us all the way. For example, we ended up in what could potentially have been a bidding war with another family, but Isaiah helped us figure out a price that would ward off a potential bidding war while working within our budget. Though it didn't feel like it at the time, when we look at comps and other metrics, we got a total deal on our home. After inspecting the home, Isaiah also helped us negotiate our bid price down so we could address issues with the HVAC system immediately. Other realtors will talk to you, then send you a database of MLS postings that match your square footage and pricing criteria. Then they make you do the work to select homes from viewing listings and pictures online. When you seem interested in a home, you ping them and tell them you want to see a home. It's a really passive process. Isaiah worked hard to figure out our tastes and needs. He actively sought to show us homes so we could make the cost tradeoffs we needed. With my busy work schedule and the stress of third-trimester pregnancy, the last thing I wanted to do was sit and view MLS postings all day. In the end, we settled on the home we wanted without having to view a hundred homes. I couldn't have asked for a smoother first time home-buying experience. Thank you, Isaiah, for everything!

Jan T.

Angelle Hall has been my realtor for the last 12 years, both buying and selling.

I would never use anyone else. Her resources and network are extensive in the Austin area. Angelle's attention to detail and knowledgable expertise make the entire process virtually stress free. She has helped me with both a forever home and investment properties. Her patience is limitless. She was immensely helpful during my recent sale. I was out of town and she was my project manager and dear friend. Between the pandemic, living out of Austin and all the details of selling an older home I had owned for 20 years I was having some issues making sense on options and trying to make some complicated decisions. Angelle held my hand, explained everything and connected me to experts when I needed more information/advice to make sound decisions for what was best for me and my family. I took her advice and it paid off! Also, because of her contacts we were able to expedite services needed to get the house in a great position to sell. She knows what she is doing... use her, listen to her and I promise she will do you right. She is a genuine, transparent, GOOD person that does things the right way. Every transaction has been a positive experience for all parties involved.

Sherida T

Angelle Hall has been the most dedicated realtor I've ever dealt with.

Such a support before and after the sale. She's my go-to from here on out! Thank you!

Alexis Ramirez

Amanda Nichols guided us every step of the way through the selling process.

She was always very responsive and we felt like she was knowledgeable about the area. Without her expertise, we wouldn’t have been able to sell the house in one day! Amanda and Allure will definitely be our Go To on all of our future real estate endeavors.

Trixie Ibayan

Angelle Hall has the innate skillset of emotional intelligence, practical wisdom and real estate savvy that made purchasing our first home both a learning experience and adventure.

We never felt stressed, but informed and prepared as the process unfolded from finding the right place, inspections, paperwork, and purchase. It was actually fun, and we enjoyed what for many people is a highly stress laden experience. Angelle was with us each and every step of the way to ensure that things flowed, seemingly effortlessly, though she was always busy behind the scenes, working the phones on our behalf and keeping us well informed. Any questions or concerns that arose were handled with a smile and efficiency. Even after the purchase was made and the keys handed over, Angelle continues to be a highly informed and supportive resource with helping us navigate the waters of being a first time homeowner in Austin. We would both highly recommend Angelle Hall for anybody looking to understand the local real estate market, and finding a dream home that fits your very own personal and lifestyle.

Marcello & Aleks

I am a repeat offender!

;) My husband and I first worked with Angelle Hall in 2009 to buy our first home. After we had a kiddo in 2012, we quickly knew that we would outgrow our home in a few years and need her assistance again. Fast forward to 2017, when I approached Angelle, requesting her services to help sell our home in South Austin and buy a home outside of the city, in Spicewood. To make a long story short, we put a contingent offer on a house we loved and had to sell our home quickly to make the deal work. There were times when we thought we weren’t going to get the house of our dreams, but Angelle worked diligently to make it happen. She is knowledgeable, personable, approachable, patient and generous with her time (because I texted her mornings, mid-day, evenings, weekends, etc.!) She thoroughly answered all of our questions and explained everything in detail. If she didn’t have the answer, she’d get it right away. She has a wonderful team of advocates backing her, including fantastic mortgage and title professionals. Our specific situation was a crazy, bumpy ride, but Angelle made the journey as smooth as possible. In the end, we sold our home (multiple offers the first day!) and moved to a beautiful home near the lake, on almost an acre of land. We’re loving it out here and it wouldn’t have been possible without Angelle Hall. We don’t plan on moving any time soon, but if we ever needed to, we’d choose Angelle again in a heartbeat. I can’t recommend her enough

HJ Christie

I can only commend Kevin and Evelyn Poplin for being my agents in the sale of my 🏠.

They were very helpful, gave me advise and responded to any questions I had. I would recommend them any day to anyone!

Hilde Hutchinson

There are no words to describe the awesome job Maria Ivicic did with selling our home and helping us to find a new one.

She was very patient, knowledgeable and professional..I felt like a "housezilla" at times but she was always so patient and understanding. I highly recommend Maria to anyone looking to buy or sell...Maria is AWESOME!!!!!

Lavinia C.

My partner and I bought our first house in May.

We used Angelle Hall as our realtor. Not only was she smart and down-to-earth, she busted her butt to find us a house, showing us any and all properties we wanted to see. She was flexible and a great communicator. She explained everything to us, as we were first-timers, and she was available to us when we needed her. We found our dream house and she worked closely with the seller's agent to make it happen for us. I could not recommend her more highly.

Teresa Z

I thought I would sell my house myself; "It's a seller market" I thought.

I am so glad I didn't, and decided instead to ask Sherry Bueche to help us. Though my wife and I had several experiences selling our homes in the past (we're near 70) using an agent, and my wife had worked in a realtors office early in her career, we thought we knew a lot about what and how to do it ourselves, I can say now that it would have been a mistake to do it on our own. We found Sherry to be very patient and knowledgeable, and most helpful with important information and suggestions every step of the way.

Jim Archer

Annie Bright was wonderful.

She was professional and on top of the sale of our house. We were not in town, and she checked on the house continually. It sold to very nice people. We are pleased.

Bibiana D.

Isaiah is the most creative and detail-oriented real estate experience my family has ever known.

We were able to partner with him to create a vision of where we wanted to live in Austin, create a workable budget, then create the intention to find the best home for us using all the real estate tools he knows so well. We have now worked with him for multiple homes as our family grew and each one has been a true home not just a house. I recommend his services to anyone who wants to find the perfect home for now and the perfect real estate relationship that can stay with you long term.

Carolyn P.

I can't recommend Angelle Hall enough.

I have now completed 3 transactions with her, as both buyer and seller. She is a very knowledable agent with great integrity. Her experience and credentials are top notch, but what I love about working with her is that she is that she is a great educator to her clients all along the way, saving them valuable time, money, and effort, showing them the way to go for the greatest result. She is also a great listener, so she tailors her searches, recommendations, and negotiations to you, for you, every time. If it is the staging of a property, she know who to refer you to and the colors and textures you need to show off the house. If it is a plumber needed after an inspection, she has a list of the best and works to get the evaluations to you quickly. She is so well connected in the communities she works with she is able to leverage that on behalf of her clients. She also knows the city codes, the changes in the laws and allowances and whom to contact with questions. Angelle has the great talent of anticipating needs and bringing solutions before you know you need them and of being an excellent negotiator. She will get you top dollar as a seller and will help you get the best price as a buyer. She has a very personal touch and stays in contact long after the sale to make sure you are completely satisfied and that you have done all the follow up needed to start your next chapter after the sale is completed. She is a consummate professional who becomes a very friendly advocate. I love working with her.

Cristin C.

If you're buying, selling or investing in Real Estate in the Austin area, you need Sherry on your team!

As a native Austinite, she knows this area like very few agents, and will give you professional counsel on all of your Real Estate needs. She's not only a great agent, but FUN to be around...so HIRE SHERRY!

Mark Hairston

We cannot offer enough praise for Shelley Stricker as our agent in selling our home.

It is SO IMPORTANT to trust your realtor throughout the process of buying or selling a home and Shelley went above and beyond to not only earn our trust, but to nurture and hold that trust sacred. She went above and beyond to ensure our questions were answered, communicated each step of the process with us, and did a fantastic job representing us during what would normally be a stressful time. She's very knowledgeable and works hard to ensure the whole process is perfect for her clients. We really cannot thank Shelley enough!

Darren Jensen

Maria Ivicic is the consummate professional.

Very thorough and works at an incredible pace. We are so grateful we found her to help us with our housing needs. Another aspect that separates Maria is her ability to communicate clearly. She is very responsive and follows through with her call backs, texts and email. We were never in the dark about the process of securing our home. If you are looking for a no nonsense yet empathetic realtor who listens to your needs, look no further than Maria Ivicic. You will be as satisfied as we are today! Maria truly is a rock star in the real estate industry.

Richard Lucero

I've worked with many REALTORS over the years and Sherry Bueche is one of the best!

Sherry is a REALTOR who shows commitment to mastering her skills and upholding the Code of Ethics. She is a pleasure to work with and her fun energy shines through in all that she does. As a native Austinite, Sherry is a wealth of knowledge on Austin and the surrounding areas. You can't go wrong in hiring Sherry as your REALTOR.

Leslie

Jef Hahl of Allure Real Estate was a pleasure to work with.

He was very patient, knowledgeable, and helped me get a great deal on my house. Even to this day, well after closing, he still answers any questions I have. Highly recommend to anyone!

William Mutzig

We moved to Austin from the Northeast in 2020 and worked with Angelle for the last 2 years to purchase a home.

Although the real estate market in Austin has been incredibly challenging and stressful at times, we relied on Angelle's extensive knowledge and expertise of the area, straightforward style, professionalism and amazingly positive attitude. We consider Angelle not only a savvy realtor but a friend and someone we trust to the fullest extent. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area.

Brett & Nadia

Annie is a wonderful representative for your Agency.

She not only is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the housing market from construction through finance and realtor, but she is able to exchange this knowledge in a manner that is understandable and helpful in decision making. She makes one feel that she cares and you are not just another "customer." In my search and purchase decision Annie has gone above and beyond in representing me. Because of some medical issues she has been my fierce representative in the first and second walk through and has kept me fully informed at every step. Everyone should be fortunate enough to have Annie in their selling or purchasing of a home. You could do no better.

Jerome Weger

Angelle was extremely professional and helpful in getting our house ready for sale.

She also kept us calm when the market was changing.

Ron S.

I cannot say enough good things about Angelle.

She was so supportive and encouraging through all the stress of selling our home. We ended up moving out of state before the house was on the market and she was super helpful with recommendations for workers and inspectors and coordinating access to the house. Her knowledge of the area and relationships with other agents really gave us confidence throughout the whole process. I highly recommend her services as she was just a joy to work with!

Michele Thorley

Maria Ivicic is the most informative and capable real-estate agent.

She was the utmost professional. I completely trusted her and knew without a doubt that she had my best interest in mind in ALL interactions every step of the purchase of my new home. I’m planning on using her for the sale of my old home.

Cindy Gee

Great Experience Working with Angelle Hall was a great.

She was recommended to me by a friend. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. She answered my many questions quickly and thoroughly, provided options whenever possible, kept things moving forward even when there were hiccups in the house preparation, and provided helpful information along the way. Because of her years of experience, she was also able to tap into a wide group of contacts and quickly assess the market for my house to ensure that my house sold quickly--in a week.

Chris Ferguson

Maria Ivicic was my trusted realtor, who went above and beyond with drive and determination I have not experienced with past realtors I've hired to sell.

Her work ethic and attention to detail, down to the quality of my listing photos(!), was much appreciated. She led me through every step of the process which can be mind boggling.

Jo M.

We'd been trying to sell some property at Horseshoe Bay for years but couldn't get it done.

Sherry came in, took ownership of the problem and got it sold for a price we loved. What a fantastic job she did, from finding a buyer, negotiating a price, shopping for the right title company and getting it done! We couldn't be more pleased.

Dave Howard

We had the pleasure of working with Angelle Hall on purchasing our first home and we couldn't be happier with the result.

My fiancee and I found our dream home and Angelle was instrumental in turning this dream into reality. It's a tough market to navigate and having an advocate like Angelle was the "ace" up our sleeve. She was attentive to all our questions, no matter how mundane. She had a real gift for distilling complex concepts into understandable notions.From the beginning, she outlined a clear path on how we need to go about the process and she kept a keen eye from search to closing. When finding prospective properties, she was quick to gather all available information and was always open to viewing the properties promptly. She was even able to find information on properties before they hit MLS, a big plus. Due to her efficient qualities, we were one of the first people to view the house we purchased and we were the first to get our offer in. Her continued care and work with the seller's agent helped to create a seamless bridge while strongly advocating for our needs. We truly hope that all who search for a home are able to find a place as lovely as the one we found. Having an agent such as Angelle is all a buyer could ever ask for. To top it off, her house warming gifts were simply splendid and we will be ever grateful for her hard work and attentive care.

David M

Karin was fantastic and was able to help us find a house quickly!

PJ

We recently bought our first home, and Angelle Hall was amazing at guiding us through the process.

She was always quick to respond to questions and requests to see property, and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the Austin market. We would not of found our dream home without her help!

Nancy H

Our lender recommended to us a realtor, who was Angelle.

I had my sights set on a house that I had not even seen and we were relocating to to Austin from LA which was definitely a gamble. Long story short, we felt Angelle did a fantastic job and went above and beyond to our unique situation. Not only did she view the house and call us nonstop with details and updates before we got to town, but she continued to guide us as first time home buyers and let us know the pros and cons to every situation. She also kept on top of us getting all our ducks in a row with lending (as we own a business and self employment can be tricky). Angelle works very hard and I can't recommend her enough! It is truly is important to find a Realtor who is on the ball and Angelle is someone who will be your best asset should you find the home of your dreams!

Jessica S.

We bought out first house about four years ago, and Isaiah Tibbs was our realtor.

I cannot recommend Isaiah enough. He was fantastic. We were not necessarily even looking for a house at the time, but a friend of ours had told us of a house in her neighborhood that had just come on the market and put us in touch with Isaiah (a personal friend of hers) to arrange a showing. Isaiah graciously agreed to show us the house, a lovely place in Wilshire Wood (where we now live). Although we were only dipping our toes in the water and approaching this as just a one-off visit, Isaiah took us under his wing and helped guide us through the broader process of thinking about buying a house. He arranged to show us some other houses around town for comparison so we could understand what the market in Austin looked like and what kinds of deals you might find around different parts of town, which helped us think about what our needs might be with a baby coming and what counted as a real value and how to look past superficialities and see the real worth of a home. We liked the Wilshire Wood house enough to put down a bid, and Isaiah worked hard for us to get it, though that deal ultimately didn't work out. But Isaiah's dedication really shone through, and he kept working with us until another (better) house in Wilshire Wood came up and Isaiah did a magnificent job of helping us get a successful bid, nailing the winning bid price down almost perfectly. He helped us get a good lender, worked hard to address potential maintenance issues in the house, and got us everything we wanted from the seller during the negotiation process. We moved in a few months later and are living there still. I'll highlight a few things about Isaiah that make him an excellent realtor. First, he knows his stuff. He was not going to let us buy a house just to get a sale --- he wants his clients to get a good deal and buy a house that has real potential and is worth what you pay for it, and his knowledge of the particulars of the Austin market is impressive. More importantly, he is willing to educate you on how to make wise decisions on your own. I learned a lot from Isaiah, and it clearly was an important part of his approach to make sure his clients made their own very informed decisions. Second, he's not afraid to tell you what he thinks in sometimes brutally honest terms, and his unmitigated, direct feedback proved vital in our own decision making. Third, though, he is also a good listener. I remember in particular one house we visited in Northwest Hills that was in many ways a really fantastic deal but the amount of remodeling involved was just beyond what we were willing to tolerate, a constraint on our situation we didn't even realize ourselves until we saw that house. Rather than pushing us to go for it or blowing our concerns off, Isaiah listened to our feedback carefully and you could actually see in his eyes and face a deeper thoughtfulness that emerged in how to direct our search going forward. Fourth, he will fight for you. He got a lot for us on the deal we finally got, and he wasn't willing to compromise on the things that were important to us. Finally, Isaiah really cares about real estate, and I think this comes from a very personal place. At one point I asked Isaiah why he got into real estate and he told me a very honest and personal story about his parents selling their beautiful Victorian home some years ago that inspired him to open his eyes to what a house and a home really are to people. This stuff means a lot to him and it's in his blood. I recommend Isaiah greatly. He'll fight for you and help you find the best home you can, no matter what.

John B.

Excellent experience working with Justine Smith.

With the market tightening I had the right person by my side closing the deal. Thanks to Justine and Allure team.

Backyard Pioneer

I have done business with Angelle Hall for the last few years and couldn't be more pleased with her service.

Angelle has been stellar in representing me in all of my real estate ventures. She's always available, honest, timely and works with a very positive attitude. She has helped me with purchasing, selling and leasing properties, including finding great tenants for a rental she helped me purchase in 2015. In addition, she does absolutely beautiful staging and is truly willing to go the extra mile to help you achieve your property goals, no matter what they are. I am so grateful to have her representation, knowledge, and guidance in navigating my way through the real estate market.

Diane Lawlis-Clarke

Let's just start this out with a little bit of feelings here: Rachel was an absolute delight to work with, and, though we don't plan to purchase another house anytime in the near future, I sure would hire her again in a heartbeat (and you should, too!

). From the start, it was clear that Rachel had her sh*t together; she invited us to her brokerage for an incredibly polished presentation to ensure we knew everything that was going on throughout the entire process. She also created helpful videos to inform her clients about some of the lesser understood parts of the home buying process to make the concepts incredibly accessible to a novice like me.

Valerie G

Sherry is an awesome realtor!

She listened to where I wanted to live and helped my dream become a reality. This was my 1st time becoming a homeowner on my own and she made the process a breeze. She really has your back.

Michelle Villhard

We recently worked with Angelle to list and sell a rental property in San Marcos.

We were reluctant to spend too much money on a make ready and we found her advice to be sound as to where our dollars could best be spent. She was very thorough in regards to all of the contract negotiation. We were happy with the price we made and really enjoyed working with Angelle. She is knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. We would happily recommend Angelle as an excellent seller's agent.

A.M.

Angelle you are simply the best!

I cannot possibly list all of the reasons but know that I’m so very happy I chose you to help me with the sale of my Austin home! We were working long distance and I could not have had a better person to work with! You made me completely comfortable throughout the process and I trusted your expertise and experience. You really went above and beyond with the make ready and staging. The home was sold in a matter of days! Not only did you provide great customer service along the way, you stayed in contact and explained the process as we waited for the buyer’s loan to be completed. I feel sure there is not another agent more willing, able and determined in the Austin area! Thank you again Angelle!

Debbie Rabe

I chose Angelle Hall for the sale of my family home.

Angelle had recently listed and sold the home next door and I was impressed with the marketing of that home so I chose her as my agent. Angelle is incredibly personable and is exceptionally good at her job. She is communicative, knowledgeable and prompt to respond to any concerns or questions. The process from start to finish was the smoothest real estate transaction I have experienced. I would highly recommend Angelle to family, friends and others for their real estate needs.
